I stayed two nights in this hotel to attend Mozart's Requiem in the Barcelona Basilica de Santa Maria del Mar. The hotel is central to many attractions in Barcelona all within walking distance. To name a few you may walk to Basilica de Santa Maria del Mar, Barcelona Cathedral, Boqueria market, La Rambla, Casa Mila, Casa Batllo, and Teatro Poliorama. The room was very clean and tidy but do not expect great views from your window. The room was quiet as well. The outstanding thing about this hotel is the staff. They treated me as family not just a guest passing by. I salute them.

Room Tip: High room back side is quiet

The hotel is located near the Gothic quarter which is perfect for exploring Barcelona by foot. A very modern, chic and trendy hotel which features the cities best rooftop bar and pool area.
Nice breakfast selection and like the idea you can have coffee to go once your finished.
Drinks in the rooftop bar in the glorious sunshine is a must. Although the pool water is not heated and is very cold!
Highly recommended.
TIP - Hotel car back to airport costs 35 Euro (same price as standard off the street cab)

Great hotel and location. Located in the center of the city and close to everything and easily accessible by aerobus from the airport. The staff was awesome and very helpful.
Would definitely stay here again on our next visit to Barcelona.

Only there for 2 nights on a tour so we were not able to evaluate value. Enjoyed the stay and the facilities. Only faults were slow internet and both mornings we were at breakfast about the time it opened and the scrambled eggs were cold. Had to ask the staff to warm them.

Hotel is about 20-30 minutes from airport and 10-15 from port. Taxi from airport is about €40 and from the port it is about €15. We enjoyed both nights at this hotel. They held our bags after we got off ship early and room was ready by 10:30. Let us use wi-fi while waiting in lobby. Air condition worked wonderful. Spacious room and bathroom. Staff ((Ingrid, Diego and everyone else) were very helpful and very polite. Wonderful king sized bed. Location is one block from Catedral. Right behind hotel is old city with the narrow streets. Easily walked to La Ramblas and Boquire market. Sagrada Familia is a 25-30 minute walk but very nice especially if you wonder thru the old city and narrow streets. You must see inside the Sagrada Familia. You can walk to Parc Cuitadella and see the fountain in about 10 minutes. Hotel is decorated contemporary. Don't forget to use your room key when using the elevator. Highly recommend this hotel.

Dear Guest,

Your comments are highly appreciated.
From what I am reading you had a fantastic time in Barcelona before and after your cruise.... sounds like a wonderful holiday!!!
I am glad the hotel was your "oasis" in the city where could rest and recharge after your busy sightseeing days.
Look forward to welcome you very soon on your next trip to Barcelona :)

Best wishes,
Silvia de Blas, GM
